Expungement Basics 

While the expungement law does contain certain exceptions, these general rules apply:

• Expungement of Dismissed cases – can be expunged in 1 year

• Expungement of Misdemeanor convictions – can be expunged in 5 years

• Expungement of AMS convictions – can be expunged in 5 years

• Expungement of Level 6 felony convictions – can be expunged in 8 years

• Expungement of D Felony convictions – can be expunged in 8 years

• Expungement of Major felony convictions – Some (but not all) major felony convictions can be expunged in 8 years

It is important to remember that normally, you only receive one expungement per lifetime (although this does not apply to cases that have been dismissed). Also, in some situations, the waiting period to have your record expunged can be shortened. More information about Indiana Expungement law is available here.  If you have questions about having your case expunged, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
